Yeah, that would be an odd mix for a 12 year old in the mid 80s-- not only are the songs five-to-ten years old, but popular music changed drastically in the early 80s.

Very young children don't always follow popular music *exclusively *. After all, to them, all music is new music. I distinctly recall my brother's eldest daughter (now a teenager) being a huge Beatles fan aged about 5-8. Hell, she could recite the lyrics to 'Love me Do' verbatim.

And as I said, for my part at least, my musical tastes at that age were a mish-mash of what I'd been exposed to from my parents, brothers and what had been in movies I'd liked. Despite growing up in the 80's I wasn't really aware of popular 80's music until much later. Not counting the odd number one that was playing everywhere of course, but those were usually novelty songs like this masterpiece or comedy records for charity. Of course that's all on this side of the pond. YMMV.

Re: Marvel planning Guardians of the Galaxy movie!

Hey -- anyone have any idea what the rating of this film will be? i'm confused, because the GotG will have some kind of kids meal (I forget if it's Subway or somewhere else)...so it seems weird to market for little kids if it'll be rated R.

WHile the PG-13, IMHO, is a light one for Cap America & Avengers...films that would be thoroughly enjoyed by parents who would be happy to talk with their kids about the movie afterward.

PG 13, like all the rest of the Marvel movies.

Re: Marvel planning Guardians of the Galaxy movie!

Yeah, I don't ever see one of Marvel's main MCU movies going above PG-13. I could maybe, maybe see them going down to PG, but I don't ever see one of them being R. The only way I could see Marvel doing an R movie was if it was for something that was more of a side story, that wasn't really a big part of the MCU.

There's no way they put an R-rated movie. It just doesn't make economic sense for Marvel to do that, especially with the shared universe they're pushing.

Punisher War Zone was rated R.

But yeah, no mainstream Marvel film will ever be rated R.

Re: Marvel planning Guardians of the Galaxy movie!

OK...cause i think when this project was first coming out, people were saying it would "need" to be R.

I want to see it...but i have 2 kids..so wondering if it'd be OK.

Re: Marvel planning Guardians of the Galaxy movie!

I wonder why people thought it needed to be R? The comics are part of the main Marvel (Comics) Universe, so I find it hard the believe they ever went beyond a PG-13 level of content. I haven't read them yet, but I find it hard to believe they went that far in terms of content.

I'm just surprised people still give a damn about the rating system at all.

Not once in my entire life have I decided whether a movie was appropriate for me or my daughter based upon the rating. Because, quite frankly, those ratings don't mean shit, and the way they assign them is beyond idiotic.

Re: Marvel planning Guardians of the Galaxy movie!

Is there a limit to how many times a PG-13 movie can use the f-word?
